‘Am Shalem’ Party Publishes its List


The Am Shalem party started by MK Chaim Amsallem (Shas) has announced its list of candidates for the next Knesset. Spots 2-5 were filled by Moshe Tzarfati, Reuven Agassi, Daniella Yakira and Maxim Oknin, respectively.

Amsallem has publicly distanced himself from Shas, which he has accused of leading Jews of Middle Eastern descent away from their roots by encouraging full-time Torah study for married men and avoidance of army service, both common in hareidi-religious communities of European Jewish descent.
